‘Waves of Grain’, A Stop-Motion Animation of Layers of Wood Being Stripped Away by a Planer

“Waves of Grain” is an experimental short animation by video designer Keith Skretch featuring a wood planer stripping away layers from a block of wood with photographs being taken after each pass. The resulting animation adds a surprising element of movement to the ever-changing wood grain. We recently posted about an animation by Laurin Döpfner that achieved a similar effect with a grinding machine.
